Honourable Members of the Senate: 

Members of the House of Commons: 
It affords me great pleasure to greet you as you resume your Parliamentary 
duties at the beginning of this New Year. 
50439— U 



THE SENATE 3 ELIZABETH H 



Since you last met, the people of Canada have been given an opportunity 
of extending once more an affectionate welcome to Her Majesty, Queen 
Elizabeth, the Queen Mother. They have also had the pleasure of greeting again 
the consort of our Sovereign, the Duke of Edinburgh, who came to attend the 
British Empire and Commonwealth Games held in Vancouver during the 
summer and to visit northern parts of Canada. 

While there is hopeful evidence that the increasing strength of the free 
world has lessened the likelihood of aggression, the terrible destruction that 
war would bring to North America and indeed' to all mankind has been 
magnified by the increase in the number and effectiveness of atomic and 
thermonuclear weapons and the means of delivering them. 

My Ministers are convinced that, while the resources of diplomacy must 
never be neglected in the search for peace, the efforts of the free nations in 
building their deterrent forces must be maintained. To this end, Canada was 
represented at the London and Paris Conferences which formulated an alter- 
native to the European Defence Community and provided for the entry of the 
Federal Republic of Germany into the North Atlantic Treaty Organization. You 
will be asked to approve the agreements reached at those meetings. 

Our country continues to give full support to the United Nations. The 
Canadian delegation took an important part in the deliberations of the recent 
meeting of the General Assembly in New York. It is earnestly hoped that the 
adoption of the resolution on disarmament introduced in the political com- 
mittee by the Canadian delegation may lead to agreement on an effective 
system of international safeguards. 

While no final settlement has been reached in Korea, the lessening of the 
threat of renewed aggression in that area has made possible the withdrawal of 
a substantial portion of the Canadian forces. 

At the invitation of the Geneva conference Canada has accepted the heavy 
responsibility of serving on the Armistice Commissions which have been formed 
to supervise the restoration of peace in the Associated States of Indo-China. 

Last autumn our nation was the host at the annual meeting of the Con- 
sultative Committee of the Colombo Plan. You will be asked to approve 
Canada's continued participation in the Plan as well as in the United Nations' 
Technical Assistance Programme. 

A meeting of Commonwealth Prime Ministers will be held in London at 
the end of this month to consider a number of problems affecting the peoples 
of this great association of nations. My Prime Minister plans to attend this 
conference. 

During the summer arrangements were completed to permit the navi- 
gational facilities of the St. Lawrence River to be enlarged and a hydro electric 
project to be undertaken in the International Rapids section. 

Work on these two projects has already begun and my Ministers are 
convinced the stimulus to the national economy resulting from their construc- 
tion will be shared in all parts of the country. 

Since you last met. Cape Breton Island has been linked with the mainland 
by the new causeway which will be ready for service as soon as the ship canal 
has been bridged. 



A.D. 1955 7th JANUARY 



It is expected that, in the course of the coming season, the new ferry 
between North Sydney and Port aux Basques will be in operation and the ferry 
service between Yarmouth and Bar Harbour started. Construction of a new 
ferry to operate between Nova Scotia and Prince Edward Island will be under- 
taken early in the present year. 

To improve navigation on the Pacific Coast, you will be asked to make 
provision at this session for the removal of Ripple Rock. 

Canadians learned with deep regret of the loss of life and damage to 
property caused by two severe storms felt heavily in the Province of Ontario 
and the Province of Nova Scotia. An agreement has been reached with the 
Province of Ontario to assist those persons whose homes were damaged or 
destroyed and assistance has been given under the Agricultural Prices Support 
Act to the producers of apples in Nova Scotia. You will be asked to make the 
necessary financial provision for these arrangements. 

The Disabled Persons Act which you passed at the last session was pro- 
claimed to come into force at the beginning of the present year. The govern- 
ments of all the provinces have announced their intention to participate in 
implementing the programme to assist those who are totally unable to care 
for themselves; and my Ministers are now in a position to conclude the 
necessary federal-provincial agreements to bring this humanitarian measure 
into operation. 

Although the national economy is in a generally healthy condition, the 
relatively poor wheat crop is being reflected by a small decline in the total 
national income. Some unemployment of a regional and seasonal nature is 
being experienced. To help meet this situation work on public construction 
projects already approved is being accelerated and you will be asked to make 
financial provision for construction in the programmes of various departments 
and agencies on a scale that will make possible a substantial increase in the 
total expenditures for this purpose. 

The government proposes to introduce legislation immediately for the 
amendment of the Unemployment Insurance Act to provide for an increase in 
the duration and scale of supplementary winter benefits. It is also proposing to 
introduce, during the session, broader amendments designed to make Unem- 
ployment Insurance a more effective instrument in providing financial support 
to unemployed workers. 

The National Housing Act, 1954, enacted early in the last session, which 
authorized lower down-payments and larger loans, and which enabled the 
chartered banks for the first time to make loans on the security of residential 
mortgages, has been an important factor in stimulating the construction of a 
record number of houses in the past year. The prospects are favourable for a 
high level of house building in 1955. 

It is proposed to bring into general operation on the first of February the 
provision of the Act under which loans may be made for home improvements. 
In accordance with an undertaking given at the last Session, this section was 
proclaimed for small holders under the Veterans' Land Act with effect from 
the first of this year. 



THE SENATE 3 ELIZABETH H 



You will be asked to consider amendments to the Railway Act relating to 
the elimination of level crossings. The government also hopes to lay before you 
during the present session a measure to consolidate the legislation affecting the 
Canadian National Railways. 

Amendments to the Electricity and Fluid Exportation Act and a measure 
to control works which affect the normal flow of rivers which cross the inter- 
national boundary will be proposed for the purpose of ensuring that natural 
resources are developed in the best interests of the Canadian public. 

You will be asked to consider a measure to implement a convention 
between Canada and the United States relating to fisheries research on the

The Right Honourable Louis S. St-Laurent, P.C., Q.C., 

Prime Minister of Canada, 

Ottaw^a. 

My dear Prime Minister: 

Since our pleasant meeting last Tuesday in Montreal, my colleagues and 
I, with particular attention and with the sincere desire of co-operating to the 
fullest reasonable extent in its solution, have studied the important fiscal prob- 
lem which was the subject of our interview. 

Our legislative assembly opens in a few weeks, on November 17. I need 
hardly mention the vast additional amount of work involved in its preparation. 
Moreover, I am leaving this week on a vacation of about ten days' duration, 
the first I have taken in over a year. 

Under the circumstances, even with the best of intentions, it is physically 
impossible before my departure to obtain and study the statistics which form 
the basis of the subject. At the earliest possible moment I will write you 
again on my return. 

Nevertheless, I wish to mention here that, if you decide to call a Canadian 
inter-governmental conference at Ottawa, we will be happy to attend and we 
will not hesitate to defer our parliamentary work should this conference take 
place during the session of our legislature. 

With my sincere regards,

Office of the Premier 
Province of Quebec 

Quebec, November 1, 1954. 

The Right Honourable Louis S. St-Laurent, P.C., Q.C., 
Prime Minister of Canada, 
Ottawa, Ontario. 

Dear Mr. Prime Minister: 

Pursuant to our interview in Montreal on October 5th last and to the letter 
I sent you on the 11th of the same month, I am writing you on the subject of 
the provincial income tax in and for the province of Quebec. 

We believe that we clearly defined the opinion and the attitude of the 
Government of the province of Quebec, in matters of the powers of taxation 
during the Canadian intergovernmental conferences which were held in Ottawa 
since 1945 and came to a close at Quebec in 1950, as well as in the corre- 
spondence we have had with federal authorities, particularly since 1949. 

The agreement concluded between the preceding provincial government 
and the federal authorities, concerning important provincial powers of taxa- 
tion, expired in 1947. Since then, the province of Quebec has not availed 
itself of its right to collect a provincial income tax in the province. This 
shows the earnest desire of the Quebec government to come to an agreement 
with Ottawa and, after all, the federal government has profited financially, to 
a large extent, by this situation which lasted approximately seven years. 

The great progress and the tremendous developments, from which our 
immense province benefits, particularly large and numerous districts which 
were formerly less-favoured, necessitate numerous public services and many 
improvements in several important fields of provincial administration, espe- 
cially in the vital fields of education and hospitalization. 

Such tremendous progress and the brilliant prospects before the province 
require a more complete utilization of the sources of provincial revenue. It 
is unnecessary to emphasize that the progress and prosperity of the province of 
Quebec make a truly worthy contribution to the progress and prosperity of 
the country in general. 

Therefore, the Quebec legislature decided to levy, within the province, a 
provincial tax on personal income. Unquestionably, as agreed by all, it is 
a tax that the Canadian constitution authorizes Quebec to impose. Actually, 
this tax represents only approximately 10 per cent of the federal tax on 
personal income collected in the province of Quebec, because, even though 
our provincial tax is apparently calculated to be 15 per cent of the federal 
tax, the exemptions provided by the provincial law materially reduce this 
proportion. 



A.D. 1955 18th JANUARY 46c 



In short, the provincial tax represents approximately 10 per cent of the 
federal income tax collected from the taxpayers in the province of Quebec and, 
by deducting the provincial tax from the federal tax Ottawa will in fact 
receive about 90 per cent of the tax on personal income collected in the 
province of Quebec. 

The federal authorities assert that the province and the federal government 
have concurrent rights of taxing personal income. About 10 per cent to the 
province and about 90 per cent to Ottawa, is an extraordinarily reasonable 
concurrence, you will no doubt agree. Furthermore, it should be recalled that 
our provincial income tax is use entirely for purposes of education and hos- 
pitalization, public health and social legislation among others, in and for the 
province. 

Since the end of the last war — I merely mention facts without details or 
appraisal — some provinces have abandoned to the central authority certain 
important sources of provincial income in return for payment by Ottawa of 
federal subsidies to these provinces. 

We have said on several occasions that the province of Quebec wishes 
to retain its powers of taxation and does not wish to exchange them for sub- 
sidies. We consider it our duty to maintain such an attitude. 

We are ready to enter into a really temporary agreement which would 
grant to the parties concerned a further extension of time to arrive at a 
definite arrangement. The federal authorities are of the opinion — and we 
respect their opinion without sharing it — that they have the right to impose 
taxes in one province to assist certain provincial projects in another province. 
The province of Quebec has always been and is still ready to co-operate 
reasonably and in a constitutional manner for the welfare and prosperity 
of the other provinces of the Canadian confederation. 

It is beyond question that the revenue derived from taxes levied by 
Quebec, including the provincial tax on personal income, and which would be 
affected by the arrangem.ents arrived at between Ottawa and the other prov- 
inces, it is beyond question, I say, that such revenue of the province of Quebec 
represents much smaller sums than the amount offered by Ottawa to the prov- 
ince of Quebec in its proposal to exchange important sources of provincial 
revenue for federal subsidies. 

In short, the other provinces and the federal authorities, in our humble 
opinion, cannot reasonably object to the proposal we are making; first, because 
the amount collected by the province is financially less than the grant offered 
by the federal government and, secondly, because, as everyone agrees, the 
province is only exercising an indisputable right. It seems to us only elementary 
justice that the federal authorities should deduct from their tax on personal 
income paid to Ottawa by the taxpayers of Quebec, the amount of the pro- 
vincial income tax which only after all represents a small fraction of the 
federal tax. 

It is our profound conviction that the taxing powers which belong to 
the province of Quebec must be exercised by the province. These powers, 
which spring from dearly acquired rights and freedom, are indispensable to 
responsible government; they are also essential if the province is, freely and 
in accordance with its religious and national traditions, to exercise its rights 
and fulfil its obligations, amongst others, those pertaining to the vital fields 
of education and hospitalization. 

In order to reach an agreement concerning the deduction of our provincial 
tax, we are ready to delete from our act authorizing a provincial tax on 
personal income the statements, in the preamble, to the effect that the province 
has a prior right in the matter of direct taxation. 



46d the senate 3 ELIZABETH II 



Further, we shall give effect, by order in council, to the decision we have 
taken, a couple of months ago, with a view to making the tax payable to 
Quebec on undistributed income and dividends consistent with the federal act. 
In other words, by virtue of such amendment, the province will only get 15 
per cent of the rates authorized by the federal act in such cases. 

Our provincial tax act on personal income is for a period of three years, 
that is to say, for each of the calendar years 1954, 1955 and 1956; we suggest 
that an agreement to be arrived at between Ottawa and Quebec should be for 
the same period. 

The Quebec government wishes earnestly to reach an amicable settlement 
of this problem, and we express the hope that the above-mentioned provincial 
proposals will be favourably received by the federal authorities. 

As I wrote you on October 11th, "if you decide to call a Canadian inter- 
governmental conference at Ottawa, we will be happy to attend and we will 
not hesitate to defer our parliamentary work should this conference take place 
during the session of our legislature".

Dear Mr. Duplessis: 

Pursuant to our telephone conversation of Wednesday November 3rd con- 
cerning your letter received the day before, I wish to inform you that I am 
having statistics compiled by our officials of the Department of Finance, with 
a view to determining what would result, as regards deductions, from the fact 
that, to establish the taxable income under the federal act and your own Act, 
the amount of such taxable income would be, for all single taxpayers, $500.00 
less under the Quebec act than the federal act and, for all married taxpayers, 
$1,000.00 less. 

Possibly, your officers have already prepared compilations to that effect, 
and if such were the case, it might be a good thing if we were to agree to 
their contacting ours, so as to prevent the possibility of misunderstanding 
which would affect the governing rules to be applied in order to eliminate 
double taxation.

Canada 

Ottawa, January 14, 1955 

The Honourable Maurice L. Duplessis, Q.C., 
Premier of the Province of Quebec, 
Parliament Buildings, 
Quebec, Que. 

My dear Premier: 

Since receiving your letter of November 1st, my colleagues and I have 
considered at length the problem raised by the Quebec income tax and by 
the fact that the taxpayers having to pay it remain subject also to the 
federal tax. 

This is, of course, an inevitable consequence of two jurisdictions exercising 
their concurrent rights to tax the incomes of the same persons. The only way 
you suggested to avoid the effect of double taxation upon the taxpayers of 
Quebec is for us to deduct from the federal tax on the income of each individual 
an amount equivalent to the amount which he is required to pay as the 
provincial tax. 

In your letter, you state that the provincial tax "represents only approxi- 
mately 10 per cent of the federal tax on personal income collected in the 
Province of Quebec because, even though our provincial tax is apparently 
calculated to be 15 per cent of the federal tax, the exemptions provided by 
the provincial law materially reduce this proportion". In this quotation from 
your letter, you refer to two different aspects of the provincial law. When 
you state that the Quebec tax represents approximately 10 per cent of the 
federal tax you compare the yield of the provincial tax to the amount produced 
by the federal tax in the province of Quebec. 

V/hen you say that your tax "is apparently calculated to be 15 per cent 
of the federal tax", you explain this percentage by referring to the scale 
of exemptions granted by your law. This scale is such that it does not subject 
to your tax all the Quebec taxpayers who are obliged to pay the federal tax. 
In order to obtain an amount corresponding to 10 per cent of the amount 
yielded by the federal tax, it has been necessary to fix, for those who have to 
pay your tax, a higher rate than if you had distributed the burden over all 
those we tax. 

Provincial legislatures have, like the federal parliament, the right and the 
responsibility to distribute the burden of their taxes on their taxpayers in 
whatever way seems most appropriate to them. This is a right and a respon- 
sibility which is the same for all provinces, and none of them can be compelled 
to conform with the course of action followed elsewhere. Whatever differ- 
ences there may be in the rules adopted by the different provinces, the federal 
law must be the same everywhere and it must be such as to leave the federal 
government with the revenues needed to fulfil its national responsibilties. 

At present the federal law allows every Canadian taxpayer having to pay 
a provincial personal income tax to claim a deduction up to 5 per cent of his 
federal tax. This method of deduction raises certain administrative difficulties 
and, what is more serious, it makes the real incidence of the provincial tax 
depend on the terms of the federal law and makes the total amount deducted 
from the federal tax depend on the terms of the provincial law. Instead of 
deducting the provincial tax from the federal tax, we intend to propose to 
parliament a reduction of the federal tax for all taxpayers of a province 



A.D. 1955 18th JANUARY 46g 

having a provincial tax, whether or not they have to pay the provincial tax. 
Thus, the taxpayers of such a province will receive the benefit of the total 
amount of the reduction in the federal tax and the federal and provincial 
authorities will be able to determine, independently of one another, in what 
way and to what extent their taxpayers will be subjected to their respective 
taxes. 

The 5 per cent deduction allowed at present by the federal law was fixed 
in 1946. Since that time, two changes have occurred. In the first place, the 
rates of the federal tax have been reduced with the result that there has been 
a corresponding reduction in the amount represented by the 5 per cent. In 
addition, the tax rentals paid by the federal government to the provinces under 
the tax agreements have been rising as a consequence of the increase in the 
population and in the national product. 

Pending the results of a new federal-provincial conference, we proposed 
therefore to ask parliament to amend the federal income tax law in order 
to grant a reduction of 10 per cent to all taxpayers of any province where a 
provincial income tax is levied whether or not all these taxpayers have to 
pay the provincial tax. We will recommend that this amendment apply to the 
years 1955 and 1956. At the same time, we will ask parliament to release 
from its present agreement any province which would prefer this new arrange- 
ment and I am immediately so informing the other premiers. 

Moreover, we feel it would be reasonable to make the new percentage 
apply to taxpayers who have been in fact subjected to two taxes on their 1954 
income. We intend, therefore, to propose that the taxpayers who will have paid 
provincial income tax for 1954 be allowed a deduction up to 10 per cent 
of their federal tax. 

We hope that this action on our part will encourage your government to 
act in the same spirit and that we will have, on both sides, helped to prepare 
the atmosphere for useful and fruitful work during the next federal-provincial 
conference. 

In any event, we would have had to meet before the end of 1955 to discuss 
the fiscal relations of the years which will follow the expiry of the present tax 
rental agreements. We feel that it might be appropriate to begin the new 
conference at an earlier date, if that is possible. Upon my return from the 
commonwealth meeting in London, towards the middle of February, I intend 
to communicate with the premiers of all the provinces with a view to working 
out arrangements for a conference and fixing a date for it. 

Yours sincerely, 

(Sgd.) LOUIS S. ST. LAURENT

Office of the Prime Minister 
Canada 

Ottawa, January 14, 1955. 

The following letter sent to all provincial premiers with the exception of 
the premier of Quebec. 

My dear Premier: 

You will no doubt have learned from the press that I have been in com- 
munication with the premier of Quebec about the situation created for per- 
sonal income taxpayers in that province resulting from the imposition of a 
provincial income tax applicable in the years 1954, 1955 and 1956. 



46h the senate 3 ELIZABETH II 



Before this provincial tax was imposed, the situation in Quebec was that 
the income taxpayers of that province were paying federal taxes at the same 
rate as other Canadians although the people of Quebec were not receiving the 
financial advantage for their provincial services that the people of the other 
provinces were receiving through the tax rental agreements. 

Since the imposition of the provincial tax many of the personal income 
taxpayers in Quebec are required to pay higher personal income taxes than 
other Canadians, and payments under the tax rental agreements are still un- 
available to the people of that province, because the government of the prov- 
ince preferred, as was its right, not to conclude an agreement. 

At the time the provincial tax was imposed, the provincial authorities 
suggested publicly that the total amount of the tax paid to the province should 
be allowed by the federal authorities as a tax credit against the federal income 
tax. 

If the federal government had accepted this suggestion, we would have 
felt obliged to make the same concession to any other province, and this would 
have meant that the effective rate of federal taxation in each province would 
have been set by the provincial authorities and would have differed from one 
province to another. We felt that the federal law must be uniform in its 
application in all provinces. 

We did indicate, however, that the federal government was not wedded 
to the principle of tax rental agreements to the exclusion of any better alterna- 
tive arrangement if one could be found. At the same time, we made it clear 
that the present government had no intention of abandoning the objective of 
the tax rental agreements which is to make it financially possible for all the 
provinces, whatever their tax base, to perform their constitutional functions 
themselves and to provide a reasonable Canadian level of provincial services 
without an abnormal burden of taxation. That is the foundation of the policy 
of the federal government. 

I had a meeting with the premier of Quebec at his request in October and 
he indicated, at that time, that he was considering making certain amend- 
ments to the provincial tax law which he hoped might make some temporary 
arrangement possible. My colleagues and I felt it was our duty to make every 
effort to find some alternative to the tax rental agreements which would 
preserve the fundamental objective of those agreements which I have men- 
tioned and at the same time be more acceptable to all provincial governments. 

We are not yet in a position to propose an alternative to the tax rental 
agreements which we believe would be generally satisfactory and, as the agree- 
ments still have two years to run, we felt that, meanwhile, we should propose 
a stop-gap arrangement which, without being unfair to the other provinces, 
would reduce the burden of double taxation placed on many of the income 
taxpayers in the province of Quebec. 

I have already indicated that we could not meet the suggestion of the 
Quebec authorities and allow the whole of their income tax to be deducted 
from the federal tax, unless we were prepared to accord a similar right to any 
other province. 

It is our view that whatever differences there may be in the tax laws 
adopted by the different provinces, the federal laws must be the same every- 
where and must be such as to leave the federal government with the revenues 
needed to fulfil its national responsibilities. 

At present the federal law allows every Canadian taxpayer having to 
pay a provincial personal income tax to claim a deduction up to 5 per cent 
of his federal tax. This method of deduction raises certain administrative 
difficulties and, what is even more serious, it makes the real incidence of the 



A.D. 1955 18th JANUARY 46i 



provincial tax depend on the terms of the federal law and makes the total 
amount deducted from the federal tax depend on the terms of the provincial 
law. Instead of deducting the provincial tax from the federal tax we intend 
to propose a reduction of the federal tax for all taxpayers of a province having 
a provincial tax, whether or not they have to pay the provincial tax. Thus, 
the taxpayers of such a province will receive the benefit of the total amount 
of the reduction in the federal tax and the federal and provincial authorities 
will be able to determine, independently of one another, in what way and to 
what extent their taxpayers will be subjected to their respective taxes. 

The 5 per cent deduction allowed at present by the federal law was 
fixed in 1946. Since that time, two changes have occurred. In the first place, 
the rates of the federal tax have been reduced with the result that there has 
been a corresponding reduction in the amount represented by the 5 per cent. In 
addition, the tax rentals paid by the federal government to the provinces 
under the tax agreements have been rising as a consequence of the increase 
in the population and in the national product. 

Pending the results of a new federal-provincial conference, we propose, 
therefore, to ask parliament to amend the federal income tax law in order 
to grant a reduction of 10 per cent to all taxpayers of any province where 
a provincial income tax is levied whether or not all these taxpayers have to 
pay the provincial tax. We will recommend that this amendment apply 
to the years 1955 and 1956. At the same time, we will ask parliament to release 
from its present agreement anj^ province which would prefer this new 
arrangement. 

Moreover, we feel it would be reasonable to make the new percentage 
apply to taxpayers who have been in fact subjected to two taxes on their 
1954 income. We intend, therefore, to propose that income taxpayers who 
will have paid a provincial tax for 1954 be allowed a deduction up to 10 per 
cent of their federal tax. 

I shall be glad to know at your convenience whether your government 
would wish to be released from the tax rental agreement in order to take 
advantage of the proposed new arrangement for 1955 and 1956. 

It had always been understood that it would be necessary to hold a 
federal-provincial conference before the end of 1955 to discuss fiscal arrange- 
ments for the years which will follow the present tax rental agreements. 
In the light of recent developments it might be the desire of the provincial 
governments to have this conference held at an earlier date. 

I shall accordingly communicate with you again shortly after my return 
from the commonwealth prime ministers' meeting in London towards the 
middle of February with a view to working out arrangements for a conference 
at a time which will be satisfactory to all governments concerned. 

Yours sincerely,

2. Resume of the Five Schedules Attached to the Protocol on the Termination of 
the Occupation Regime 

(i) Schedule I 

This Schedule amends the former "Convention on Relations between the Three 
Powers and the Federal Republic of Germany". The introductory words have 
changed since 1952 from "the three Occupying Powers" to a list of the four Powers 
who have "entered into the following Convention setting forth the basis of their 
new relationship". 

Article 1 of the Schedule states that the three Powers will terminate the Occupa- 
tion regime in Western Germany, revoke the Occupation Statute, and abolish the 
offices of the Land Commissioners. The Federal Republic is accorded "the full 
authority of a sovereign State over its internal and external affairs". 

Article 2 lays down that the Three Powers retain their rights "relating to Berlin 
and to Germany as a whole, including the reunification of Germany and a peace 
settlement". 

In the original Convention, Article 2 had included in these reservations, the 
right to station troops in Germany. Under the new arrangements, allied troops 
will remain in Germany as at present "pending the entry into force of the arrange- 
ments for the German defence contribution" and, after that, remain with the consent 
of the Federal Government. Their position is covered in a separate convention, 
the text of which is given below. Thus, the new status of the Federal Republic 
is taken into consideration without jeopardising the rights of the three Powers in 
Berlin. 

Articles 4 and 5 deal with the responsibilities obtained by the three Powers 
relating to the stationing of armed forces in Germany and the protection of their 
security. The Convention states that, after the coming into force of the German 
defence contribution, "the forces of the same nationality and effective strength as 
at that time may be stationed in the Federal Republic." The Convention is open 
to any State which is not a signatory but which had forces stationed in Germany on 
October 23, 1954 — i.e. Belgium, the Netherlands, Canada, Luxembourg and Denmark. 
The Convention is to expire "with the conclusion of a German peace settlement 
or if at an earlier time the signatory States agree that the development of the inter- 
national situation justifies new arrangements". 

With regard to the protection of the security of allied forces in Germany, allied 
rights "shall lapse when the appropriate German authorities have obtained similar 
powers under German legislation enabling them to take effective action to protect 
the security of those forces, including the ability to deal with a serious disturbance of 
public security and order". (See the letters from the Chancellor to the three foreign 
Ministers reproduced as the first letter below). 



A.D. 1955 20th JANUARY 62c 



Article 10 of the Schedule sets out the terms under which the Convention may 
be reviewed; they are: 

(a) "Upon request of any one of them, in the event of the reunification of 
Germany, or an international understanding being reached with the participation 
or consent on steps towards bringing about the reunification of Germany, or the 
creation of a European federation". 

(b) "In any situation which all the signatory States recognize has resulted from 
a change of a fundamental character in the conditions prevailing at the time of the 
entry into force of the present convention". 

(ii) Schedule II and III 

Schedule II amends the Convention on the Rights and Obligations of foreign 
forces and their members in the Federal Republic. The third Schedule brings up 
to date the Finance Convention. The German Government will provide a monthly 
average contribution of 600m. marks for the support of the allied forces from the 
entry of the Convention into force until the arrangements for the German defence 
contribution are completed. These provisions apply only until June 30th, 1955. 
During the first year of the German defence contribution, the Federal Republic will 
make available a total amount of 3,200m. marks for the support of the allied forces. 

Schedules IV & V 

Schedule IV amends the Convention "on the Settlement of Matters arising out of 
the war and the occupation". It makes clear that existing programmes of de-central- 
ization will be completed. Legislation concerning the reorganization of the German 
coalmining, iron and steel industries being applied at the time of the entry into 
force of the present arrangements "shall be maintained in force insofar and so long 
as de-concentration measures ordered before that date are still to be carried out or 
claimants are still to be protected." 

Article 10 sets up a mixed committee of experts whose task is defined as the 
consideration of "applications for extensions of the final time for the disposition of 
securities required by regulations or orders of the Allied High Commission or its 
subordinate bodies or by reason of the terms of a plan approved by any such order" 

The eight-line Schedule V makes three alterations in the "Agreement on the 
Tax Treatment of the forces and their members", in the original Bonn Agreement. 

Declaration of the Federal Republic on Aid to Berlin 

In view of the special role which Berlin has played and is destined to play in 
the future for the self preservation of the free world, aware of the ties connecting 
the Federal Republic with Berlin as the prospective capital of a free, reunified 
Germany, 

resolved to consolidate these ties within the framework of the status of 
Berlin, 

resolved to continue its aid to the political, cultural, economic and financial 
reconstruction of Berlin, and, 

motivated by the desire to strengthen and to reinforce the position of 
Berlin in all fields, and in particular to bring about in so far as possible 
an improvement in the economic and financial situation in Berlin including 
its productive capacity and level of employment, 

the Federal Republic undertakes 

(a) to take all necessary measures on its part in order to ensure the main- 
tenance of a balanced budget in Berlin through appropriate assistance; 

(b) to take adequate measures for the equitable treatment of Berlin in the 
control and- allocation of materials in short supply; 

(c) to take adequate measures to ensure that Berlin also benefits from resources 
at the disposal of the Federal Republic received from outside sources, for 
the necessary further economic reconstruction of Berlin; 

50439—61 



62d the senate 3 ELIZABETH II 



(d) to take all appropriate measures designed to promote the placing of public 
and private orders in the Berlin economy; 

(e) to promote the development of Berlin's external trade, to accord Berlin 
such favoured treatment in all matters of trade policy as circumstances 
warrant and to provide Berlin within the limit of possibility and in considera- 
tion of the participation of Berlin in the foreign currency control by the 
Federal Republic, with the necessary foreign currency; 

(f) to take all necessary measures on its part to ensure that the city remains in 
the currency area of the Deutsche Mark West, and that an adequate money 
supply is maintained in the city; 

(g) to assist in the maintaining in Berlin of adequate stockpiles of supplies 
for emergencies; 

(h) to use its best efforts for the maintenance and improvement of trade and 
of communications and transportation facilities between Berlin and the 
Federal territory, and to co-operate in accordance with the means at its 
disposal in their protection or their re-establishment; 

(i) to continue its efforts to compensate, as heretofore, the disproportionate 
burden placed on Berlin as a result of the admission of refugees; 

(j) to ensure the representation of Berlin and of the Berlin population outside 
Berlin, and to facilitate the inclusion of Berlin in the international agree- 
ments concluded by the Federal Republic, provided that this is not precluded 
by the nature of the agreements concerned. 



Paris, 23rd October 1954 

His Excellency, 

The Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany. 

Mr. Chancellor, 

I have the honour to acknowledge the receipt of your letter of today's date 
which reads as follows: 

"Under the Protocol on the Termination of the Occupation Regime in the Federal 
Republic of Germany, signed at Paris today, provision is made that during the 
period, if any, between its entry into force and the entry into force of the arrange- 
ments for the German Defence Contribution, the United Kingdom, the United States 
and the French Republic will retain their existing rights relating to the fields of 
disarmament and demilitarisation, and the controls in those fields will be applied 
by a joint Four Power Commission. I should appreciate it if you would confirm 
the agreement which we reached at London in this connection that at the end of 
1954 the Governments which have today signed the Protocol will review this matter 
in the light of the situation then existing with regard to the entry into force of the 
Protocol. I should likev/ise appreciate confirmation of the agreement also reached 
in this connection at London that, at the same time, the four Governments will 
review the exercise of the controls with a view to permitting preparation by the 
Federal Republic for its future defence contribution." 

I should confirm the agreements to which you refer in your letter. 

Accept, Mr. Chancellor, the renewed assurance of my highest consideration. 

Her Britannic Majesty's 
Principal Secretary of State 
for Foreign Affairs

(c) for Luxembourg, one regimental combat team. 

2. The number of formations mentioned in paragraph 1 may be brought up to 
date and adapted as necessary to make them suitable for the North Atlantic Treaty 
Organization, provided that the equivalent fighting capacity and total strengths are 
not exceeded. 

3. The statement of these maxima does not commit any of the High Contracting 
Parties to build up or maintain forces at these levels, but maintains their right to do 
so if required. 

ARTICLE 2 

As regards naval forces, the contribution to NATO Commands of each of the 
High Contracting Parties to the present Protocol shall be determined each year in 
the course of the Annual Review (which takes into account the recommendations 
of the NATO military authorities). The naval forces of the Federal Republic of

capacity.

Tactical Air Force, or such other forces as the Supreme Allied Commander Europe 
regards as having equivalent fighting capacity. She undertakes not to withdraw 
these forces against the wishes of the majority of the High Contracting Parties who 
should take their decision in the knowledge of the views of the Supreme Allied 
Commander Europe. This undertaking shall not, however, bind her in the event 
of an acute overseas emergency. If the maintenance of the United Kingdom forces 
on the mainland of Europe throws at any time too great a strain on the external 
finances of the United Kingdom, she will, through Her Government in the United 
Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland, invite the North Atlantic Council 
to review the financial conditions on which the United Kingdom formations are 
maintained.

DONE at Paris this twenty-third day of October 1954, in two texts, in the English

Signatories. 

3. Letters with reference to the jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice 
from, respectively, the Governments of the Federal Republic and of Italy 
to the other Governments signatory of the Protocol Modifying and Complet- 
ing the Brussels Treaty 

I have the honour to make the following communication to Your Excellency in 
order to place on record the undertaking of the Federal/Italian Government regarding 
the application and interpretation of Article X (formerly Article VIII), of the 
Brussels Treaty. 

The Federal/Italian Government undertake, before the Protocol modifying and 
completing the Brussels Treaty and the related Protocols and their Annexes are 
ratified by the High Contracting Parties, to declare their acceptance of the compulsory 
jurisdiction of the International Court of Justice in accordance with Article X 
(formerly Article VIII) of the Treaty, having made known to the Parties the 
reservations accompanying their acceptance. 

The Federal/Italian Government understand that, in the view of the other 
High Contracting Parties, paragraph 5 of Article X (formerly Article VIII) of 
the Treaty leaves the way open for concluding agreements on other means of settling 
disputes between Them, and that the undertaking in question shall in no way 
prejudice the possibility of opening discussions immediately with a view to estab- 
lishing other methods of settling possible disputes in the application or interpretation 
of the Treaty. 

[in the Federal Government's letter only] 

Moreover, in the opinion of the Federal Government, the widening of the 
Brussels Treaty may give rise to a number of doubts and disputes as to the interpre- 
tation and application of the Treaty, the Protocols and their Annexes, which may 
not be of fundamental importance but mainly of a technical nature. The Federal 
Government consider that it is desirable to establish another, simpler procedure 
for the settlement of such matters. 



A.D. 1955 20th JANUARY 62s 



The Federal Government therefore propose that the High Contracting Parties 
should discuss the problems set out above at once, with a view to reaching agree- 
ment on an appropriate procedure. 

[In letters from both Federal and Italian Government] 

I should be grateful if Your Excellency would confirm that [the Government 
concerned] agree with this letter. The exchange of letters thus effected will be 
considered as an Annex to the Protocol modifying and completing the Brussels 
Treaty, within the meaning of Article IV paragraph 1, of the said Protocol. 

Reply to the Letters from the Governments of the Federal Republic and of Italy 
to the Other Governments Signatory of the Protocol Modifying and Completing 

the Brussels Treaty 

I have the honour to acknowledge receipt of Your Excellency's communication of 
(date) and to state that [the Government concerned] have noted with satis- 
faction that the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany/the Italian Govern- 
ment undertake to declare their acceptance of the compulsory jurisdiction of the 
International Court of Justice in accordance with Article X (formerly Article VIII) 
of the Brussels Treaty, having made known to the High Contracting Parties the 
reservations accompanying their acceptance. 

I confirm that [the Government concerned] interpret paragraph 5 of Article X 
(formerly Article VIII) of the Treaty as stated in the third paragraphs of Your 
Excellency's communication. 

[In the reply to the Federal Government's letter only] 

With regard to the fourth and fifth paragraphs of Your Excellency's communica- 
tion, [the Government concerned] are in agreement with the proposal of the Federal 
Government that the High Contracting Parties should discuss at once the question 
of establishing an appropriate procedure for the settlement of the possible disputes 
to which the Federal Government draw attention. 

[In the reply to both Governments] 

They also agree to consider this exchange of letters as an Annex to the Protocol 
modifying and completing the Brussels Treaty within the meaning of Article IV, 
paragraph 1 of the said Protocol.

Atlantic Treatj^ Organization and of reinforcing the machinery for the collective 
defence of Europe, and desirous of specifiying the conditions governing joint examina- 
tion of the defence effort of member countries. 

2. RECALLS that: 

(a) the resources which member nations intend to devote to their defence effort 
as well as the level, composition and quality of the forces which the member nations 
are contributing to the defence of the North Atlantic area are each year subject to 
collective examination in the NATO Annual Review for the purpose of reaching 
agreement on force goals, taking into account expected mutual aid; 

(b) the defence expenditures incurred by the member nations and the extent 
to which the recommendations emerging from the Annual Review have been carried 
out are the subject of periodical reviev/ during the year. 

3. AGREES with the terms of the Agreement on Forces of Western European Union; 
and that with respect to the forces which the members of Western European Union 
will place under NATO Command on the mainland of Europe and for which maxi- 
mum figures have been established in that Agreement, if at any time during the 
NATO Annual Review recommendations are put forward, the effect of which would 
be to increase the level of forces above the limits established in this Agreement, the 
acceptance by the country concerned of such recommended increases shall be subject 
to unanimous approval by the members of Western European Union, expressed 
either in the Council of Western European Union or in the North Atlantic Treaty 
Organization. 

4. DECIDES that all forces of member nations stationed in the area of the Allied 
Command Europe shall be placed under the authority of the Supreme Allied Com- 
mander Europe or other appropriate NATO Command and under the direction of the 
NATO military authorities with the exception of those forces intended for the 
defence of overseas territories and other forces which the North Atlantic Treaty 
Organization has recognized or will recognize as suitable to remain under national 
command. 

5. INVITES member nations to make an initial report for consideration and recogni- 
tion by the Council on those forces which they plan to maintain within the area 
of Allied Command Europe for the common defence, but not to place under the 
authority of the North Atlantic Treaty Organization, taking into account the provi- 
sions of relevant NATO directives bearing on that subject; the initial report will 
include a broad statement of the reason for which the above forces are not so placed. 
Thereafter, if any changes are proposed, the North Atlantic Council action on the 
NATO Annual Review will constitute recognition as to the suitability and size of 
forces to be placed under the authority of the appropriate NATO Command and 
those to be retained under national command. : 

6. NOTES that the agreements concluded within the framework of the Organization 
of Western European Union on the internal defence and police forces which the 
members of that Organization will maintain on the mainland shall be notified to 
the North Atlantic Council.

declaration made on the same occasion by the Governments of the United States 
of America, the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the 
French Republic (Annex B), 

NOTES WITH SATISFACTION that the representatives of the other Parties 
to the North Atlantic Treaty have, on behalf of their Governments, today associated

Declaration by the Government of the Federal Republic of Germany 

The German Federal Republic has agreed to conduct its policy in accordance 
with the principles of the Charter of the United Nations and accepts the obliga- 
tions set forth in Article 2 of the Charter. 

Upon her accession to the North Atlantic Treaty and the Brussels Treaty, the 
German Federal Republic declares that she will refrain from any action inconsistent 
with the strictly defensive character of the two treaties. In particular the German 



A.D. 1955 20th JANUARY 62w 



Federal Republic undertakes never to have recourse to force to achieve the re- 
unification of Germany or the modification of the present boundaries of the German 
Federal Republic, and to resolve by peaceful means any disputes which may 
arise between the Federal Republic and other States. 

Declaralion by Ihe Governments of United States of America, United Kingdom 

and France 

The Governments of the United States of America, the United Kingdom of 
Great Britain and Northern Ireland and the French Republic, 

Being resolved to devote their efforts to the strengthening of peace in accordance 
with the Charter of the United Nations and in particular with the obligations set 
forth in Article 2 of the Charter: 

(i) to settle their international disputes by peaceful means in such a manner 
that international peace and security and justice are not endangered; 

(ii) to refrain in their international relations from the threat or use of force 
against the territorial integrity or political independence of any State, 
or in any other manner inconsistent with the purposes of the United Nations; 

(iii) to give the United Nations every assistance in any action it takes in 
accordance with the Charter, and to refrain from giving assistance to any 
State against which the United Nations take preventive or enforcement 
action; 

(iv) to ensure that States which are not Members of the United Nations act 
in accordance with the principles of the Charter so far as may be necessary 
for the maintenance of international peace and security. 

Having regard to the purely defensive character of the Atlantic Alliance 
which is manifest in the North Atlantic Treaty, wherein they reaffirm their faith in 
the purposes and principles of the Charter of the United Nations and their desire 
to live in peace with all peoples and all Governments, and undertake to settle their 
international disputes by peaceful means in accordance with the principles of the 
Charter and to refrain, in accordance with those principles, from the threat or 
use of force in their international relations, 

Take note that the German Federal Republic has by a Declaration dated 3rd 
October accepted the obligations set forth in Article 2 of the Charter of the United 
Nations and has undertaken never to have recourse to force to achieve the re- 
unification of Germany or the modification of the present boundaries of the German 
Federal Republic, and to resolve by peaceful means any disputes which may arise 
between the Federal Republic and other States; 

DECLARE THAT: 

1. They consider the Government of the Federal Republic as the only German 
Government freely and legitimately constituted and therefore entitled to speak for 
Germany as the representative of the German people in international affairs. 

2. In their relations with the Federal Republic they will follow the principles 
set out in Article 2 of the United Nations Charter. 

3. A peace settlement for the whole of Germany, freely negotiated between 
Germany and her former enemies, which should lay the foundation of a lasting 
peace, remains an essential aim of their policy. The final determination of the 
boundaries of Germany must await such a settlement. 

4. The achievement through peaceful means of a fully free and unified Germany 
remains a fundamental goal of their policy. 

5. The security and welfare of Berlin and the maintenance of the position of 
the Three Powers there are regarded by the Three Powers as essential elements 
of the peace of the free world in the present international situation. Accordingly 



62x THE SENATE 3 ELIZABETH II 



they will maintain armed forces within the territory of Berlin as long as their 
responsibilities require it. They therefore reaffirm that they will treat any attack 
against Berlin from any quarter as an attack upon their forces and themselves. 

6. They will regard as a threat to their own peace and safety any recourse 
to force which in violation of the principles of the United Nations Charter threatens 
the integrity and unity of the Atlantic Alliance or its defensive purposes. In the 
event of any such action, the three Governments, for their part, will consider 
the offending Government as having forfeited its rights to any guarantee and any 
military assistance provided for in the North Atlantic Treaty and its protocols. 
The3' will act in accordance with Article 4 of the North Atlantic Treaty with a 
view to taking other m.easures which may be appropriate. 

7. They will invite the association of other member States of the North Atlantic 
Treaty Organization with this Declaration.

FINAL ACT OF THE LONDON CONFERENCE (OCTOBER 3rd) 

Following is the text of the "final act" of the London conference: 
"The conference of the nine Powers, Belgium, Canada, France, the 
German Federal Republic, Italy, Luxembourg, the Netherlands, the United 
Kingdom, and the United States, met in London from Tuesday, September 
28th, to Sunday, October 3rd. It dealt with the most important issues facing 
the western world — security and European integration within the framework 
of a developing Atlantic community dedicated to peace and freedom. In this 
connection the conference considered how to assure the full association of the 
German Federal Republic with the west and the German defence contribution. 

"Belgium was represented by M. Spaak, Canada by Mr. Pearson, France by 
M. Mendes-France, the German Federal Republic by Dr. Adenauer, Italy by 
Professor Martino, Luxembourg by M. Bech, the Netherlands by Dr. Beyen, 
the United Kingdom by Mr. Eden, and the United States by Mr. Dulles. 

"All the decisions of the conference formed part of one general settlement 
which is directly or indirectly of concern to all the North Atlantic Treaty 
Organization Powers and will therefore be submitted to the North Atlantic 
Council for information or decision. 

I. Germany 

"The Governments of France, the United Kingdom, and the United States 
declare that their policy is to end the occupation regime in the Federal 
Republic as soon as possible, to revoke the Occupation Statute, and to abolish 
the Allied High Commission. The three Governments will continue to dis- 
charge certain responsibilities in Germany arising out of the international 
situation. 

"It is intended to conclude, and to bring into force as soon as the necessary 
parliamentary procedures have been completed, the appropriate instruments 
for these purposes. General agreement has already been reached on the content 
of these instruments, and representatives of the four Governments will meet 
in the very near future to complete the final texts. The agreed arrangements 
may be put into effect either before or simultaneously with the arrangements 
for the German defence contribution. 

"As these arrangements will take a little time to complete, the three 
Governments have in the meantime issued the following declaration of 
intent: — 

"Recognizing that a great country can no longer be deprived of 
the rights properly belonging to a free and democratic people, and 
desiring to associate the Federal Republic of Germany on a footing of 
equality with their efforts for peace and security, the Governments of 
France, the United Kingdom, the United States of America desire to 
end the occupation regime as soon as possible. 

"The fulfilment of this policy calls for the settlement of problems 
of detail in order to liquidate the past and to prepare for the future, 
and requires the completion of appropriate parliamentary procedures. 

"In the meantime the three Governments are instructing their 
High Commissioners to act forthwith in accordance with the spirit of 
the above policy. In particular, the High Commissioners will not use 
the powers which are to be relinquished unless in agreement with the 



A.D. 1955 20th JANUARY 62aa 



Federal Government, except in the fields of disarmament and demilitar- 
ization and in cases where the Federal Government has not been able 
for legal reasons to take the action or assume the obligations con- 
templated in the agreed arrangement. 

II. Brussels Treaty 

"The Brussels Treaty will be strengthened and extended to make it a 
more effective focus of European integration. For this purpose the following 
arrangements have been agreed upon: — 

(a) The German Federal Republic and Italy will be invited to accede 
to the treaty, suitably modified to emphasize the objective of European unity, 
and they have declared themselves ready to do so. The system of mutual 
automatic assistance in case of attack will thus be extended to the German 
Federal Republic and Italy. 

(b) The structure of the Brussels Treaty will be reinforced. In particular 
the consultative council provided in the treaty will become a council with 
powers of decision. 

(c) The activities of the Brussels Treaty organization will be extended 
to include further important tasks as follows: — 

The size and general characteristics of the German defence contribution 
will conform to the contribution fixed for the European Defence Community. 

The maximum defence contribution to NATO of all members of the 
Brussels Treaty organization will be determined by a special agreement 
fixing levels which can be increased only by unanimous consent. 

The strength and armaments of the internal defence forces and the 
police on the Continent of the countries members of the Brussels Treaty 
organization will be fixed by agreements within that organization having 
regard to their proper function and to existing levels and needs." 

Armament Control: Purpose of New Agency 

"The Brussels Treaty Powers agree to set up, as part of the Brussels 
Treaty organization, an agency for the control of armaments on the Continent 
of Europe of the continental members of the Brussels Treaty organization. 
The detailed provisions are as follows: — 

(1) The functions of the agency shall be: 

(a) to ensure that the prohibition of the manufacture of certain types 
of armaments as agreed between the Brussels Powers is being 
observed.

of the types of armaments mentioned in the following paragraph. 
This control shall extend to production and imports to the extent 
required to make the control of stocks effective.

to be established hereafter by an expert working group. 

Measures will be taken to exclude from control materials and products 
in the above lists for civil use.

the EDC Treaty are atomic weapons, chemical weapons, and biological 

weapons. Weapons in other categories listed in this annex are long-range

defensive craft; and military aircraft. Annex I to Article 107 of the EDC 
Treatj^ divides conventional and unconventional armaments into a number 
of categories.) 

(3) As regards the weapons referred under paragraph (2) (a) above, when 
the countries which have not given up the right to produce them have passed 
the experimental stage and start effective production, the level of stocks 
that they will be allowed to hold on the Continent shall be decided by the 
Brussels Treaty council by a majority vote. 

(4) The continental members of the Brussels Treaty organization agree 
not to build up stocks or to produce the armaments mentioned in paragraph 
2 (b) and (c) beyond the limits required 

(a) for the equipment of their forces, taking into account any imports 
including external aid, and 

(b) for export. 

(5) The requirements for their NATO forces shall be established on the 
basis of the results of the annual review and the recommendations of the 
NATO military authorities. 

(6) For forces remaining under national control, the level of stocks must 
correspond to the size and mission of those forces. That level shall be notified 
to the agency. 

(7) All importations or exportations of the controlled arms will be 
notified to the agency. 

(8) The agency will operate through the examination and collation of 
statistical and budgetary data. It will undertake test checks and will make 
such visits and inspections as may be required to fulfil its functions as 
defined in paragraph 2 above. 

(9) The basic rules of procedure for the agency shall be laid down in 
a protocol to the Brussels Treaty. 

(10) If the agency finds that the prohibitions are not being observed, or 
that the appropriate level of stocks is being exceeded, it will so inform the 
^Brussels council. 

(11) The agency will report and be responsible to the Brussels council, 
"which will take its decisions by a majority vote on questions submitted by 
the agency. 

(12) The Brussels council will make an annual report on its activities 
concerning the control of armaments to the delegates of the Brussels Treaty 
Powers and to the Consultative Assembly of the Council of Europe. 

(13) The Governments of the United States and Canada will notify the 
Brussels Treaty organization of the military aid to be distributed to the 
continental members of that organization. The organization may make 
written observations. 

(14) The Brussels council will establish a working group in order to 
study the draft directive presented by the French Government and any other 
papers which may be submitted on the subject of armaments production and 
standardization."

ation of the Chancellor of the Federal Republic of Germany and record their 
agreement with it: The Federal Chancellor declares: — 

''that the Federal Republic undertakes not to manufacture in its territory 
any atomic weapons, chemical weapons, or biological weapons, as detailed in 
paragraphs I, II and III of the attached list; 

"that it undertakes further not to manufacture in its territory such weapons 
as those detailed in paragraphs IV, V and VI of the attached list. Any amend- 
ment to or cancellation of the substance of paragraphs IV, V and VI can, on the 



A.D. 1955 20th JANUARY 62cc 



request of the Federal Republic, be carried out by a resolution of the Brussels 
Council of Ministers by a two-thirds majority, if in accordance with the needs 
of the armed forces a request is made by the competent Supreme Commander 
of NATO; 

"that the Federal Republic agrees to supervision by the competent 
authority of the Brussels Treaty organization to ensure that these undertakings 
are observed." 

Federal Chancellor's List — Declaration by the Powers 

"The following list is appended to the declaration by the Federal Chan- 
cellor. It comprises the weapons defined in paragraphs I to VI and the 
factories earmarked solely for their production. All apparatus, parts, equip- 
ment, installations, substances, and organisms which are used for civilian 
purposes or for scientific, medical, and industrial research in the fields of pure 
and applied science shall be excluded from this definition. 

I. Atomic weapons.

III. United States, United Kingdom, and Canadian Assurances 

The United States Secretary of State set forth the willingness of the 
United States to continue its support for European unity, in accordance with 
the following statement. 

"If, using the Brussels Treaty as a nucleus, it is possible to find in this 
new pattern a continuing hope of unity among the countries of Europe that 
are represented here, and if the hopes that were tied into the EDC treaty can 
reasonably be transferred into the arrangements which will be the outgrowth 
of this meeting, then I would certainly be disposed to recommend to the 
President that he should renew the assurance offered last spring in connection 
with the EDC treaty to the effect that the United States will continue to main- 
tain in Europe, including Germany, such units of its armed forces as may be 
necessary and appropriate to contribute its fair share of the forces needed for 
the joint defence of the North Atlantic area while a threat to the area exists, 
and will continue to deploy such forces in accordance with agreed North 
Atlantic strategy for the defence of this area." 

British Statement 

The United Kingdom confirmed its active participation in the Brussels 
Treaty organization and gave the following assurance about the maintenance 
of United Kingdom forces on the Continent of Europe. 



62dd the senate 3 ELIZABETH H 



"The United Kingdom will continue to maintain on the mainland of 
Europe, including Germany, the effective strength of the United Kingdom 
forces now assigned to the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe, four 
divisions and the Tactical Air Force, or whatever the Supreme Allied Com- 
mander regards as equivalent fighting capacity. The United Kingdom under- 
takes not to withdraw those forces against the wishes of the majority of the 
Brussels Treaty Powers, who should take their decision in the knowledge of 
the views of the Supreme Allied Commander in Europe. 

"This undertaking would be subject to the understanding that an acute 
oversea emergency might oblige Her Majesty's Government to omit this pro- 
cedure. 

"If the maintenance of United Kingdom forces on the mainland of Europe 
throws at any time too heavy a strain on the external finances of the United 
Kingdom, the United Kingdom will invite the North Atlantic Council to review 
the financial conditions on which the formations are maintained." 

Canadian Affirmation 

Canada reaffirmed in the following statement its resolve to discharge the 
continuing obligations arising out of its membership of NATO and its support 
of the objective of European unity. 

"As far as we are concerned, the North Atlantic Treaty Organization 
remains the focal point of our participation in collective defence and of our 
hope for the development of closer co-operation with the other peoples of the 
Atlantic community. As such, it remains a foundation of Canadian foreign 
policy. While we emphasize, then, our belief in the North Atlantic Treaty 
Organization, we welcome the proposed extension of the Brussels Treaty. We 
shall look forward to a growing relationship, within the framework of NATO, 
with the new Brussels Treaty organization, composed of countries with whom 
we are already bound by such close ties." 

German Membership of NATO — Powers' Recommendation 

IV. NATO 

"The Powers present at the conference which are members of NATO 
agreed to recommend at the next ministerial meeting of the North Atlantic

"They further agreed to recommend to NATO that its machinery be rein- 
forced in the following respects: 

(a) All forces of NATO countries stationed on the Continent of Europe

(b) Forces placed under the Supreme Allied Commander, Europe, on 
the Continent shall be deployed in accordance with NATO strategy.

political guidance from the North Atlantic Council.

meeting of the North Atlantic Council on October 22nd to decide on the arrange- 
ments affecting NATO. This will be preceded by meetings of the four

world peace. A western Europe is now emerging which, resting on the close
